In this 3 session camp for parent and baby, you’ll take the first steps
toward bonding musically with your child and learn how to enrich your

in music early on, you will nurture your baby’s musical aptitude at a
time unparalleled in importance in a child’s musical development.
Bouncing, rocking songs, peek-a-boo games and instrument
exploration will increase your child’s curiosity about music and begin
to develop listening skills and a sense of beat. The class is taught by
Lori Lindberg, early childhood music specialist with the Iowa Youth
Chorus’ Beginnings Early Childhood Music Program. Parent/caregiver

and items to upcycle. Come with your creativity cranked up and
imagination ready to explore new uses for old things.

Where’s J.D.’s Great Summer Adventure?
You never know
where JD might
show up this
summer!
J.D., the Dragon mascot for the
Johnston Community School
District, will be taking off
again this summer throughout
the city of Johnston. Our
problem—we just don’t know where J.D. is planning to go.
Johnston Community Education would really like to find J.D.
as J.D. is supposed to be helping out the city and school this
summer. Can you help us find J.D.? J.D. has a website blog,
Facebook page and Twitter account. The website/Facebook
will show where J.D. has been and provides a photo of a
J.D. sighting from within the community. J.D. may also send
“tweets” with hints and other information that may help in his
whereabouts. Help us find J.D. this summer and your family
will be entered into a drawing to win a prize.
Join us this
summer to see
where he travels.
Rules
A team is a family from one household. Should be at least one
adult and one child.
Each week a photo will be placed on the website and
Facebook page about the latest sighting of J.D. Every family
team that correctly identified J.D.’s location will result in a
ticket being added to the drawing. The number of tickets that
your team receives each week you participate will depend
upon how you identify the location. Bonus tickets will also be
available.
All entries must be received, by email or in person, by 12:00
Noon CDT, each Tuesday for the prior week. (Example Week
1 entry is due by noon on Tuesday, June 3)
New photos of J.D.’s location will be posted at noon each
Tuesday.
J.D. will be out of town and unable to attend the Jazz in July
event. So he will do the drawing before he leaves town and
the Johnston Library staff will contact the winners.
All entries, including photographs, become the property of the
City of Johnston. Participation provides the City of Johnston
the permission to use photos and names to promote “J.D.’s
Great Summer Adventure” via electronic and print media and/or
for local media coverage.
How to submit J.D’s location
Option 1: Email your answer for J.D.’s location to
[email protected]; correct answers earn one team entry
into the prize drawing. Entry must include the subject line
“J.D.’s Great Summer Adventure” and include your team name,
address, phone number and the specific location of J.D. for that
week.
Option 2: Have your (at least one member of the team in
photo) picture (1mb or less) taken in the exact location as J.D.
is in photo and email it to us at [email protected] and
earn five team entries into the prize drawing per week, per
team.
Website to help you find J.D.
http://wheresjd.wordpress.com/
Option 3: Take your answer and/or your photos, and deliver
them in person to the Johnston Public Library (J.D.’s drop box)
to receive the appropriate number of entries. Forms will be
available from library staff.
For more information contact
JCE at 278-0552 or the Johnston Public Library at 278-5233.

Green Days is an annual community celebration held in Johnston,
Iowa, next to the Johnston Public Library. The 2014 festival will
be held June 19-22. The full schedule of events can be found at
johnstongreendays.org.
When the event was started in 1996, it
focused on Johnston's agricultural and
horticultural tradition. The Chamber worked
with Johnston's many nursery and greenhouse
operations, local garden clubs and other groups, to start this tradition and helped it grow to be one of Iowa's leading summer festivals.

Top 5 Crime Prevention Tips
1. Keep your overhead garage doors closed whenever you are going to be out of
immediate sight of your garage.
2. Lock your vehicle and remove all valuable property from it whenever your
vehicle is going to be left unattended for any period of time.
3. Avoid placing outgoing mail in your residential mailbox and remove the incoming
mail from your mailbox as soon as possible.
4. Keep your purse with you at all times when you are out. Avoid leaving it in a car,
on the ground, in a neighboring seat or hanging on the back of a chair.
5. Never respond to an unsolicited phone call or email requesting personal or
financial information until you have confirmed the requesting party is legitimate.
Johnston Neighborhood Watch Program
Johnston Running Club
Neighborhood Watch is one of the oldest and most
effective crime prevention programs in the country,
bringing citizens and neighbors together to deter crime
and safeguard communities with the goal of preventing
crime before it happens. On any given day, and often
without warning, you are subjected to varying levels of
criminal activity taking place directly within your own community. The Johnston
Neighborhood Watch program is about neighbors helping neighbors and partnering
directly with the Johnston Police Department where you will be provided with the
knowledge on how you can make yourself and your community safer.
The Johnston Police Department meets regularly with neighborhood watch groups to
answer questions, discuss current crime trends, and provide training and information
on Crime Prevention, Home Security and other topics of particular interest to your
group.
The Johnston Running Club will host an informational meeting
on our spring track program on March 26 at 6:30 p.m. at the
Johnston Middle School. Please email us at [email protected]
